Southwest Of Forever

When I was a kid I lived on the coast of New England. My Uncle David had left the north east for Arizona when he was 18 years old. This was back in the very early 1930's. He had terrible asthma and needed that dry climate to survive.  Every year he sent us the magazine Arizona Highways.  I poured over those pages. The photos are amazing. It kindled a life long love and desire to explore the Southwest.

The natural beauty and colors of the Southwest have influenced my knitting.

Lately I have been searching for silver jewelry from the Southwest. I have some family pieces that were passed down to me from my Mother.  Silver jewelry accented with turquoise and other gem stones were widely made by Native American's and sold at Trading Posts. In the 1930's when my Grandmother traveled there to visit David she brought home quit a lot of lovely pieces. 
I will leave the details to the experts as there are many. I would like to share some pieces I have found around Etsy.

I love this roadrunner! They just make me smile and this would look great on my cowl.

I Know That Face

I was out thrift shopping on Saturday and I ran across a face that I just couldn't resist.
Sad Hound Dog
I had seen that face before. In fact I see that face everyday.
My Sad Faced Angie
Always begging for a hand out. 
One collectible figurine was not enough on Saturday. I also saw these cute little salt and Pepper shakers.
The lady in the thrift shop wished she had seen the roosters first. She collects them.  She also told me they bring good luck. I had never heard that, but apparently it is a reason for the proliferation of rooster decor.  I just always thought they were cute.

Sorry can't put up a link for Angie girl. She is a keeper.
"Ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds of the air, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish of the sea inform you. Which of these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this? In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind."
Job 12:7-10
